illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in the proposal. can they rally republicans in the house and senate behind the political necessity of putting immigration reform behind them with a path to sit sfwlenship or not? that seems to me to be the rub. >> with 2016 on their minds, we can also talk about the unusual joint interview the president and secretary of state hillary clinton and her last week in office jointly being appearing on "60 minutes." chuck todd, this was not an endorsement, they all say. it was a thank you. it was an interesting development to see these two together after aall that had proceeded in 2008. i was fascinated by this part of the interview where they were asked by steve croft about the residual resentments by staff and spouses that last lasted longer than the principles. let's watch. >> we both built some pretty thick skins. you know, sometimes our staffs don't go through that. they are taking umbrage and offense. hellry handled this, i assume as i d
a comprehensive immigration reform proposal. one of the architects is senator marco rubio. he will be here in moments. mixed news on the economy leading to mixed results on the street. durable goods orders of stern expected. pending home sales weaker than expected. the dow fell 14 points, as in the retreating three, and the nasdaq of four and a half. volume on the big board today, three and a half million shares. caterpillar reporting profits dropped 55% in the fourth quarter. stockouts are rallying of nearly 2% on the date. toyota regaining its but as the number one global carmaker, selling nine and recorder million cars and trucks last year, topping general motors and volkswagen. the news did not help the stock price down dollar 32. yahoo shares up sharply in electronic trading. the news had earned $0.32 a share, for some special expected. revenue also started an expected in the credit market, yields on a ten year treasury crossing above 2% for the first time since last april. closing today with a yield of just under 2%. my next guest is part of the so-called gang of eight that officiall
with marco rubio, and he told me and other conservatives cheering for this bill to not be too exuberant because this is just the principle we're outlining today. the president could mess this up, the house of representatives has to mull this over. this is the first step of many that need to happen. >> why would the president mess this up? i mean obama seems to have made this a priority. he was out last summer with an executive order to let the kids of illegals stay and go to school. why would he screw it up? >> well, i think he's largely not led on this issue for his entire first term, larry, i think it's instructive that the democrats today chose to partner up with senate republicans as opposed to waiting to join on the obama bill. frankly, i'm glad to see that the senate is leading on this. people like rubio deserve a lot of credit. if republicans put their fingers in their ears here and become the hell no caucus, it's going to be detrimental to the party. and i think there are probably some people along the same lines in the house thinking about this for longer than we realize. and t
the world. that is an honest policy debate. paul will have it over the next couple years with marco rubio and others in the senate. there will be more rand paul type candidates running. i think it's healthy for the party to have the debate. i agree with the caller more than he would think. i have never been for shutting down debate or ruling out different points of view in the party. i think a help the party does challenge its own assumptions. in this case i really think we will see out of president obama the great cost from retreating from the world. host: if he runs, marco rubio would have to give up his senate seat. in the wall street journal -- she writes that it will take a stand unity to fight president obama. can the gop in washington now develop those things? guest: i don't think we can assume there will be unity. you should not just cast a vote for the sake of unity. there are some issues where you can have unity, on procedural votes. i think people can modify their views for the sake of unity. i agree with what peggy says. when the president said you did not build that, that was
and what could be a comprehensive bill. i would hope that marco rubio and menendez and other members of the senate work together to gather something that is strong and comprehensive. a piece meal approach will not work. >> is this amnesty? >> you will see changes in the republican party on this issue. the republicans recognized politically that they have to have more inclusive policies. they have to reach out to people and morally. it's the right thing to do. welcome people to the country. it makes us stronger and enriches us. i think you will see a different tone to the debate and think there will be elements in both parties that oppose it. they worry that wages will be kept down if you let people into america. whatever you call it, amnesty. there is going to be the elements that will be marginalized and be fewer this debate than last time. >> i don't think there is any doubt they have a chance of passing comprehensive immigration and president bush tried unsuccessfully even though you have and ted kennedy. plunging temperatures, ice and snow gripping much of the country right now.
, he will inherit a whole lot of problems. senator marco rubio, republican of florida, had a line about foreign policy saying the key is making sure you're not trying to do more than we can, while also ensuring we are not doing less than we should. rubio rattled off the hot spots in the mideast and kerry offered the this response. >> there's a monumental transformation taking place. this this biggest upheaval in that part of the world since the ottoman empire. since it came apart. it is a highly sectarian, divided, tribal part of the world. and i'm not sure that every policy has always been sensible on that. >> kerry said we'll do what we must to keep iran from getting nuclear weapons. shep? >> a really ugly problem is syria. what about that? >> senator kerry said there was a moment when the syrian regime was reaching out to the west, but the moment is gone. and then there was this exchange. >> every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. every day that goes by it gets worse. so, there is a -- seems to me, a very strong elm tuesday -- empetus to realize our present policy is not work
. and 60,000 dead. >> republican senator marco rubio said the obama policy on syria has been so disorganized when the situation is resolved, the people there will hate the u.s. >> as iran's best friend. grand central station for terrorists all over the world it was in our national interest to help an opposition form organize itself. >> iran's nuclear program, kerry reiterated the administration policy saying the clock is ticking on efforts to get the regime to comply. >> we will do what we must do, to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. it repeat here today, our policy is not containment. it is prevention. >> if that doesn't work it could ultimately lead to military conflict. up with senator channeled kerry on whether he supported the administration bombing libya in 2011 without congressional approval. >> you see the constitution really doesn't give this kind of latitude to sometimes go to war and sometimes not go to war. >> look, you can be absolutist and apply it to every circumstance. the problem is, it just doesn't work in some instances. >> with north korea threat
that bipartisan group of senators, marco rubio leading an effort in the senate where they are coming around a bipartisan plan. we might see it come to fruition next week. it's important, the president we're told had a meeting today with hispanic caucus. tuesday he is going las vegas. big hispanic population there to give a speech laying out his principles here. bottom line is both parties seem to start to yell behind a plan we might see movement on in weeks ahead. >> bret: we'll follow it. thank you. vice president biden down the road in virginia today. generally pro-gun state, the talk about gun control. see how the round table control in richmond after they worked on gun safety following the shootings at virginia tech. there are few subjects more divisive in the last half century than abortion. no day on the californian der that brings pro-life advocates to the like the annual protection against the supreme court ruling that legalized them. >> unadapted by the cold temperatures and threat of snow they came to washington for four decades to instill a culture in life and nation that they sa
of conservatives. marco rubio of florida, john mccain and lindsay graham were all out there saying the time has come to deal with this in a comprehensive way. >> we heard this before. i have video of chuck schumer saying this will be the last amnesty. we will do it again. look at the debates in 2006. this is the only time. marco rubio said he was not going to support a path to citizenship. they said they were not going to support the program. we have a labor market and we have job displacement and see a lot of americans who were struggling. how is this by giving amnesty and setting off a tidal wave and going to help the average american get a job and better wages and improved working conditions. how will it help the fiscal situation? the bill is a skeletal draft. these guys go into it holding arm and arm like they are going in the tunnel of love. it's like they have been in a lion's den. when you get down to the details, what you see is all the enforcement provisions and things we have on the books anyway. if the president would enforce the law, it's a big bill with a prospect of enforcement wh
a dozen years ago, but some newborn faces like marco rubio who of course is an up and coming conservative who has made this issue one of his own, because of the fact that he too is concerned about the way the republican party is perceived in the latino community. the important thing to keep in mind is this is just the beginning. there are some very divisive issues within the immigration concept that have not yet been worked out. for example, you mentioned at the beginning that this whole idea makes a path to citizenship contingent on border security. they've not worked out yet what the so-called metrics are for how they know the border is secure. that is very, very important. and the devil is, to use a cliche, in the details there. also goes for how they detyfine path to citizenship. >> jessica, you're getting some new information about the white house, the president is planning to propose, maybe as early as tomorrow, when he's in las vegas. >> the difference between the president's plan and what the senate has proposed is the path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are here
? is he willing to come to the table with marco rubio, or does he really want to keep bashing more radical elements of the republican party? does i want to deal this year or take it to 2014? those are the questions. >> that's sort of the administration beyond the party. e.j. >> what you are seeing from obama is someone who is willing now to say right up front this is what i want, and then let's deal. there's a lot of talk that the assault weapons ban can't get enough votes. he didn't say i should take that out of my plan as a concession to the other side. i want to put it in there, and let's negotiate it. maybe if i can't get that, i'll get everything else. the other point is he -- during the campaign in 2008, it may have been as early as 2007, he liked comparing himself to railroad. what's significant about what michael said is reagan wasn't just a guy who had eight years in mind. he wanted to build a long conservative ascend yancey, and what obama has in mind is i won't get everything done in these four years. i may have a republican house the entire time, but i can begin to build a move
marco rubio from florida come up with a pretty comprehensive immigration reform package or ideas. that could be a place where the president and certainly senator rubio but other members of the republican party could take an issue that's hard and it's historically been hard to reach compromise on and maybe find the common ground, find the soluti solution. so that might be something we might want to look out for over the next few weeks in addition to all the talk about the economy and that and deficits. >> brown: what's your answer to what others have commented on here as to the kind of signal the president was sending as to what kind of leader he wants to be? you know, with his vision now or reaching across the aisle? >> i thought it was more of an articulation of his vision not as much signaling reaching across the aisle. that was the message he ran on in this first race and aate lot of the message of his first inaugural. less so in this particular speech. but as ramesh pointed out, he won the election. it's his opportunity to set forth that. we're in a divided time right now. so
marco rubio probably touched on it. i support and agree with the principles he laid out as far as earned legalization. making sure people don't cut in line but fixing the problem. we did reform in '86 and again in '96. it's a system that's broken that needs fixing. and many of us who have been involved in this issue over the years. immigration is a good thing. that's what america is. it's a melting pot. we think this is good. we need to make sure it works. i think there are republicans and democrats, many of us are talking to each other, that can come together with a good solution to make sure that this problem is fixed. once and for all. and i think those rubio principles do a really good job of adhering to the founding principles, respecting the rule of law, and respecting those who came here for a better life. >> and do you see that getting done this year? >> i do. that's one of the areas where i feel that i think the president has a big speech coming up. the question that many of us are asking, republicans and democrats, is he looking to play politics or does he want to solve the pro
to do something. seeing leadership from people like marco rubio i think really does give a lot of republicans who might have doubts otherwise a real chance to think again. >> the credibility, the aura, the halo that may be needed here. jackie, those eight senators we were showing are putting their bipartisan plan out the day before the president is scheduled to outline his immigration proposal in a speech in las vegas. what are you seeing in the timing? are they trying to triang late? >> it shows momentum on this issue. here's the thing which has been the hitch on a couple different things this year already. the house. the house is going to be hard to get this through the house. it's going to be hard to get some house republicans on board. but the fact you have this bipartisan group of senators and the president and everyone stepping on each other trying to get their plan out first, it shows momentum on this issue and it does increase the chance something could get done on this. >> getting it through the house. what do they need from the senate? 89-8 like we saw in the fiscal c
and three other americans. senator marco rubio of florida was one of the three that asked sensible questions about lapses in security at the consulate. >> were you ever asked to participate in any sort of internal or interagency meeting before this attack with regard to the deteriorating security situation in libya? >> with specific security requests, they didn't come to me, i had no knowledge of them. >> for the most part, though, republicans seemed to obsess over the comments of the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice over double talk, alleged coverup and whether rice purposely underplayed the terrorist connection and underscored protests to an anti-muslim film. >> we were told there were protests and an assault sprang out of that and that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd they'd go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job
base, by the tea party. marco rubio is on the same senate foreign relations committee and had a very different tone and different question. i think he very smartly decided he did not want the narrative to be a 2016 hillary versus rubio. he wanted it to be about the substance. >> good to see you both. larry, sorry i mispronounced your name. thank you. forgive me. appreciate it. hillary clinton might say hello again soon. take a look at hillary clinton throughout the years. and here is what else we are working on this hour. >> all this cold weather may have you looking for ways to warm up. but before you try swigging a beer consider this. having alcohol in your system can increase your chances of hypothermia. plus a new report says binge drinking can cause more liver and brain damage than casual drinking. >>> manti ta'o is speaking out and the women he thought was connectic ke kekua speaks out. >>> we hear from one lawmaker taking the matter into her own hands. her plan to curb gun violence. this is "newsroom" and it is happening now. [ male announcer ] truth is theraflu doesn't treat
, on the republican side, senator mccain, marco rubio, coming out with a plain before the president unveils his. tomorrow the president is going to jet to las vegas to unveil his immigration plan. these senators putting out a marker. here are the three big points of this plan. and this is going to be the biggest debate on immigration in six years since back in 2007 when president bush's plan was deeted. he defeated. here are the three big paths. it will provide a path to legal citizenship for the people in the country illegally. that's dependent on increasing border security before that happened and some other procedural safeguards. and three, there's going to be a little faster path to citizenship for seasonal agricultural workers and for young people who are brought to the country illegally. so that's the nod to the dream act that's so popular on the left. >> andrea, what chances do a major plan like this have of getting through congress? >> i think better than ever. and the real sadness here is that john mccain, lindsey graham and others are totally behind this now. if they had been able to
debate. paul will have it over the next couple years with marco rubio and others in the senate. there will be more rand paul type candidates running. i think it's healthy for the party to have the debate. i agree with the caller more than he would think. i have never been for shutting down debate or ruling out different points of view in the party. i think a help the party does challenge its own assumptions. in this case i really think we will see out of president obama the great cost from retreating from the world. host: if he runs, marco rubio would have to give up his senate seat. in the wall street journal -- she writes that it will take a stand of unity to fight president obama. can the gop in washington now develop those things? guest: i don't think we can assume there will be unity. you should not just cast a vote for the sake of unity. there are some issues where you can have unity, on procedural votes. i think people can modify their views for the sake of unity. i agree with what peggy says. when the president said you did not build that, that was correctly jumped on.
. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from louisiana, he said that president obama had done little to enforce immigration laws. i think you will find for th
about possibly running for president. marco rubio, and rand paul. they prefer a more muscular foreign policy, and rand paul, of course the son of ron paul, thinking the u.s. is involved in too things, it too many crisis. we have a number of new members on the house committee, and they have been warned, as dana barb reported this morning, noted they had to be told by the chairman of the house committee to be respectful. he was concerned, perhaps, that some of them were going to try to make a names for themselves perhaps inappropriately. >> and the secretary is now being seated. you see the photographers there. dana bash is on capitol hill, walk us through it, the senator from new jersey will open, and then what happens. >> that's right, he will have a statement, and then the ranking republican will as well, and then we will hear from secretary clinton. generally these hearings go on and on. and bob menendez is starting now. >> let's listen. >> since the full senate has not passed the committee resolution officially seating members, i want to ask unanimous consent of members to particip
small. i think marco rubio -- i thought he asked his questions with respect to the secretary of the state of the united states of america. to those men who felt attacking hillary clinton was the best way to go, i think they lost a great opportunity to try to help to get to the point of where we are at, what we need to do, and how we can go forward to protecting our people overseas. host: we have louis. caller: i personally do not believe -- i do not agree with the kentucky caller. i thought secretary clinton was arrogant as usual. she dodged a lot of questions. she is exactly like her husband, spout out a bunch of percentages and things like that that nobody checks the facts. i think the media is beyond belief. that is beside the point. hillary clinton is absolutely without a doubt a bipolar. she travels a lot. she never stays in one place. what good has she actually done a in the four years she has been in power? i think she is an absolute horrible person. when she got on tv and said, we came, we saw, and killed like a crazy person, i thought if george bush would have done t
you to listen to what senator marco rubio, a member of the senate committee, what he said today at the hearing with john kerry. >> north korea announced that they are developing a weapon that can reach the united states of america and i think the bush administration was wrong to remove north korea from the list of states sponsored terrorism and i hope we'll reverse that. >> you were there about five years ago when the relationship at least seemed to be improving. and what about under the young leader jim jong-un. he has come into office and has been there nearly a year now and has followed his father's hard line, military force, pulling rockets, missile, satellite, nuclear program into their military program. and that is a bit of a worry. also people who are trying to figure out which way to go forward, it looks like he's trying to prove himself as a young leader and he is young and has old military around him and he's trying to project himself on the world stage. so i think the interesting thing will be is there any hope of resumption of the u.s., china, japan, those talks with
-- with marco rubio on a plan that you want to put forward. tell us about it. >> well, there are a number of plans going on right now, and i think it's actually an exciting opportunity for bipartisan work. one of the things that a group of us is working on is the h1v visa issue, and this is scientists, engineers, people who are really literally banned from our country. sometimes they get trained in our country, and then we literally send them off to start the next high-tech company or the next google in india or someplace else. it gives us the opportunity -- >> he always says when somebody gets an mba, we should staple a green card on the back of it because they go back, let's say, to new delhi and they create an i.t. company that hires 2,000 people there instead of 2,000 people in north carolina. it's lunacy. >> this country was built with immigrants with their ideas and inventions. one of them starts an invention and then they hire tons of other people. >> senator, you agree with that, right? >> they're letting canada do this. they have opened it up and we need to open it up here. >> i
national committee, i knew that she went against the machine in florida and openly supported marco rubio over charlie crist, something she was taken to task for. we all now know sharon was right. [applause] she traveled throughout her state to develop -- to republicans of ethnicity before diversity was a popular word. sharon has fought for those who did not have a voice within the republican party, and as a conservative woman i tried to keep up with her. i tried to do things that emulate everything she was doing. she has inspired many to work harder, smarter, and more effectively, especially those who wanted to get republicans elected. since becoming co-chair, she has been to more than 43 states and she has included in her stops large cities and small cities, including a small town in washington where i'm from, where we grow the best apples, cherries, pears, and winery's. she has shown that every state and county is important to the success of electing republicans. she has visited victory centers and even joined the volunteers of phone banking and doorbell ing. she helped encourage women
